Fire Hydrants & Fire Fighting Supplies
Issues surrounding fire hydrants and fire fighting systems have been a long-standing concern to water companies, Fire & Rescue Services and the sprinkler industry. This project's objectives were to identify potential improvements to national guidance documents and establish how existing protocols and funding arrangements for hydrant provision, safeguarding, repair and removal could be improved. An integrated consultation and communications strategy and programme was devised and implemented.
The National Liaison Group on Fire Fightling Activities (NLG) will be requested to oversee the implementation work, retaining overall control but delegating some of the practical work to relevant organisations. There are 4 strategic and 22 detailed recommendations for implementing the outcomes of the research project. The strategic recommendations are: that the NLG be invited to take overall responsibility for the implementation of the recommendations and actions contained in the report; production of a short briefing paper for government outlining the consultation, issues and proposed solutions; meetings with departmental contacts at CLG and Defra; ministerial and political briefing papers and meetings.
